So what goes better with that perfectly charred steak you are planning this week? Grill smashed potatoes, of course. Ah, you can grill smashed potatoes? Anything can be grilled if you set your mind to it.Common sense will tell you that smashed potatoes can’t be grilled because they will fall through the grates of the grill. So how else can the essence of the grill, fire and smoke be incorporated into the potato itself?Parboil the potatoes first, just long enough that they can be tossed with a little olive oil and seasoning and thrown on the grill. Char the skin of the potatoes on all sides by rotating them, place in a bowl or stand up mixer and make as you would any other smashed potato.If you want to take that concept even further you can gently smash the potato, keeping them intact, oil season, char and flip once to get even more grill goodness into the potatoes. Smoked potatoes can be done the same way. Only place on the top rack of the grill, over indirect heat, get some wood chips or charcoal smoking and close the lid for 30 minutes. Flavor the grilled or smoked potatoes any way you want, put them in front of family or friends and watch the look on their face when you tell them “these are my grilled smashed potatoes.” Of course, nothing will compare to the look after they take the first bite.Here is a favorite combination and basic recipe to get you started now get to grilling!
